This winter has been brutal! The Northeast has gotten hit so hard with the multiple snow storms that have blown across the country, leaving trails of destruction everywhere they go. Last week we were in the path of storm Maximus, Nikia and Quintus. Little did we know what these three storms would bring to Pennsylvania with them!
It started snowing late on Wednesday and continued through Thursday night. We went outside to shovel multiple times (we're kicking ourselves for not investing in a snow blower) and each time, the amount of snow was crazy. It's hard to see the amount of snow but this is what it looked like when we went out for the first time on Thursday morning. Notice the large piles of snow on either side of the sidewalk at the bottom of the driveway...that was from the previous snow storms that hasn't had a chance to melt.
Jason was called off of work and put on the call list. A lot of the surgeries were canceled due to the weather and most of the surgeries were high priority cases or emergencies. He got to stay home with us all day on Thursday and ended up going back to work on Friday. I ended up being off Thursday and Friday.
Friday morning I got out and went to therapy (I hurt my neck a couple of weeks ago) and was shocked to see the parking lot with snow piled up so high. The snow piles were towering over the cars in the parking lot.
This week the temperatures are suppose to be in the mid-40s, with the possibility of 50 on Friday. Fingers crossed some of the snow melts without causing major flooding in some of the low-lying areas.
Snowmageddon 2014 has been rough. We are already on the letter Q for winter storms so we can't get too much more without having to restart at the beginning of the alphabet.
